What is this Blog supposed to be, anyway?

You know, I've been thinking about this for a few weeks. I know that it's a good thing these days for an author to have a blog. This isn't my first time blogging, but I'm having a difficult time trying to decide what I want to talk about here. My first posts have to do with race and politics-- stuff I've written about before...but there's something that's a bit out of place here; it doesn't feel right.

While my first book, and the two in the series that follow, race and politics play an important role in the story. But I'm not sure that I need, or want, to cover that stuff here-- exclusively, anyway. Look, we are all not going to agree on EVERYTHING. My last post was about Donald Trump being a white supremacist-- which is what it is, I don't take that back...but I'm not sure that THIS BLOG is the place for that. Or maybe it is? I don't know. 

I think that moving forward I will try to diversify things. Of COURSE I should be talking about the book, and writing the next 2 books, AND the other stories I'll be telling in the coming years-- including a space opera, a contemporary love story, and a western. Maybe THAT'S what this blog is missing, after all-- stuff about writing! Fancy that- an author blog with NO writing entries! But hey, I'm new to this-- The Maximilian Emancipation has only been out for 2.5 months! There's a lot that I still need to learn.

So the point...I guess I needed to write this out and see it in front of me before I could make a a real choice about what to do here-- there's only so far you can get from keeping it in your head! So diversity, writing...and less Trump-talk; I think we ALL know how that is...what am I really going to add that hasn't already been said? That is, until something ELSE happens...

Stay tuned...
